Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a significant reproductive morbidity among postmenopausal and women of reproductive age in Nepal. An estimated 600,000 women are suffering from varying degrees of POP (also called uterine prolapse or fallen womb). In the absence of a competency-based training package on POP, health service providers previously did not have standards for performing surgeries and were relying on anecdotal reports, compromising on the quality of care. With the training package, service providers are now expected to have comprehensive knowledge about this condition that affects many adult women today on how to provide quality care.
This Facilitators' Guide is developed by the Ministry of Health and Population with technical and financial assistance from UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, and also with Jhpiego's technical support.

Nepal is a co-signatory to the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in 1994, and has committed itself to improve the reproductive health status of people throughout the country. The Reproductive Health Strategy of Nepal recognized that reproductive health (RH) is a crucial part of the overall health and is central to human development. Better availability and accessibility to quality RH commodities is critical to meet the ICPD and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This Reproductive Health Commodity Security (RHCS) Strategy aims to ensure a smooth supply and choice of quality contraceptives and other RH commodities to meet every person’s needs at the right time and in the right place. Its objective is to address all elements of RHCS in a holistic manner and streamline the activities to meet ICPD’s goal, the Family Planning 20/20 Commitment and the SDGs for ensuring universal access to sexual and RH rights.
This RHCS Strategy 2015 is the outcome of hard work conducted by a wide range of partners and stakeholders. Implementation of the National RHCS Strategy (2007-2011) did not produce results as envisioned due to a lack of clear, doable and achievable action plans. Therefore, UNFPA Nepal supported Family Health Division and Logistics Health Division to review, revise and update the National RHCS strategy 2007-2011, defining key strategies and priority interventions to ensure the sustainable access to RH commodities, including estimation of financial requirements for implementing the strategy.
